Lawmakers push VA to let doctors recommend medical marijuana
from Military Times
Twenty-one lawmakers have written Veterans Affairs Secretary Robert McDonald urging him to let VA doctors discuss and recommend marijuana as a potential medical treatment in states where it is legal. Under a VA policy that expires on Jan. 31, VA doctors are not allowed to discuss medical marijuana with their patients or recommend it as a treatment. Senators and representatives want a new policy that "removes barriers that would interfere with the doctor-patient relationship" in states where medical marijuana is legal.
